My wife and I really enjoy the location and setup of this French Bistro and have visited a few times. Last night we both had the duck special as the fish dishes were almost all sold out. The duck did not come with the advertises salad and tomato base sauce but rather came a bit greasy with loads of dry... More

I have been to Gastro a few times and have always been impressed with the delicious food and great atmosphere. The staff are friendly and welcoming and their are good choices for vegetarians.

Sitting outside on a sunny evening, you really do feel as though you're in Paris rather than London. Order yourself a bottle of wine and indulge in some classic French cooking whilst watching the world go by on Venn Street. Perfect for a lazy summer eve.

My record label & I moved to Clapham last October and discovered the hidden gem that is Gastro. It feels like a slice of France, decedent gorgeousness! The owners are so charismatic and fun, the management and staff are incredibly friendly and charming. If you want a sterile chain restaurant like everything else in Clapham then don't go to Gastro!... More

Never have I ever found a lovelier french restaurant. Everything is perfect. The atmosphere is old style Paris, but with much better service, and the restaurant is beautiful. Oh and the food is divine, and served till late. I'd recommend for dates, coffee, breakfast, wine-lovers, those wishing to save on a Eurostar fee! gros bisous!

Gastro is a great little bistro. The food is typically french and not bad value for money...especially the wine, which offers a good selection. The main dining area is nice, but walk past the empty and slight stagnant looking lobster tank and the back room needs a coat of paint and a general touch-up. Shame because the back (actually it...

I have lived in Clapham for two decades, the first of which I thought Gastro was an expensive fish restaurant. Then, one day ten years ago I walked past and a well-dressed lady was sitting in the window with her small dog eating a pain-au-chocolat! I grabbed my partner and dog and walked into my nirvana. It's shabby-chic, French-rustique, and... More
